From yesterday’s ‘in pieces’, we go to today’s ‘stitched up’ – or even ‘stitched together’ – all of which could be construed as a comment on our country’s current political situation, but in fact I refer to the third of the Memory Keepers:
This one is made from 15 silk patches, hand pieced, hand stitched and lined. The base is a circle of wool felt covered in silk.
This Keeper holds a secret:
The little silk velvet heart is stitched on the inside – to the lining. This Keeper is reversible, so you can have the heart on the outside and the patchwork on the inside, or vice versa. The lining fabric is from a silk tie and features flying pheasants, and there are some little gold beads stitched around the top edge.
